SIMMONS COLLEGE PRESENTS . . . 





THE MICROCOSM- 

THE SMALL WORLD THAT IS SIMMON! 

Jusf as this "small book within a book" 
shows something of the design and con- 
tent of the large book, so does this 1 939 
MICROCOSM show something of the 
"small world within a world" that is 
Simmons, portraying the college life of 
the 1 500 girls who daily pass through 
the doors of 300 The Fenway.

FOREWORD 



Simmons' customary progressive spirit found fertile 
ground in the production of the 1939 MICRO- 
COSM. The idea for this book, based on the 
"small world" that is Simmons, was born just at a 
time when LIFE had popularized a pictorial record 
of the present world. So here is a pictured story of 
"Sally Simmons" from September, 1938, to June, 
1939 — the "book within a book" portraying the 



epic of Simmons in three phases — "The Place' 



The People" . . . "The Events".
